Current consultations

Establishing and upgrading powerlines, substations and other network infrastructure is vital to ensuring we provide a reliable electricity supply to our customers. Before committing to this type of work, third parties are invited to offer alternative non-network solutions.

Below is a list of projects that we are currently consulting on with the market. If you would like to submit a proposal for one of these projects, please email us. If you'd like to receive email notifications when new projects or notices are published, please register for Network planning updates.

Futher information about how we're managing the network can be found in our Distribution Annual Planning Report.

Distribution planning and regulatory consultation reports

The National Electricity Rules (the Rules) governs the operation of the National Energy Market. As a Distribution Network Service Provider, we're governed by these Rules. More information about the Rules can be found at the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) website.

We are required by the Rules to:

  • Carry out forward planning to identify future network limitations
  • Identify potential network and non-network solutions to address future network limitations
  • Select and develop the most appropriate solution following the regulatory investment test applicable to that project.
